Maize Demised

I have no choice but to cut down the maize plant, after waiting for so long it turn out both of them are male. Just my luck !
If one of them is female its then good enough, I then can complete my article on Maize in Aquaponics. Now I have to start new.
I planted maize before (not aquaponics) the male flower will be on top as in this picture above, and the female part will be the baby corn coming out in between the leaves. Normally about 2 or 3 baby corn will grow in a plant and they will be with the hairy tip to catch the male flower dropping down fertilizing the baby corn.
All is not lost, I did document all and its a learning process and next maize will contribute more knowledge in my learning curve.
